Work was always there if you wanted it.
Mainly bring large racks of meat around the factory with both forklift and electric lifter. Early start, early finished. Well paid, with very good hours. Lots of over time.
Pros
Well paid

Productive and collaborative
A lot of emphasis on working together. Communication is well done and management are very friendly. It does feel a lot like a living community in many ways. Some days can be tough when an a larger issue affects many sites but that kinda comes with any job in IT.

Steer clear
Keep well away from this place. There is a stark difference from what actually happens on a daily basis from the the picture that was painted at the interview. Steer clear

Terrible place to work
Kerry is a terrible place to work. It's run by kids straight out of college who never worked a day in their lives. They keep check on every minute at the clock. The shift work requires you to work 7 days, evenings or nights a week.

They don't listen to employees wishes
I worked there for a number of months, on night shift, despite asking to be moved onto the day shift as didn't suit, they didn't take into consideration, despite newcomers getting in on days, I was left on nights. Also, little or no Irish working there so tend to be in the minority.

Satisfactory workplace
I found the job to be fine at the time although getting up at 5:30 in the morning for two hours of work became frustrating, i would much rather a 5 hour or 10 hour stint.

Management style is from the 1950's
Expectation for General Operators is to work 7 days per week Kerry expects to be entitled to change your shift pattern at a days notice no matter what plans you may have made. No respect for peoples personal lives.
Pros
Money reasonable for operator work
Cons
Shift patterns ridiculous
